Tonight on Scrappy Time Jay spends some time with Kylie Sliger, an 18-year-old first-time voter who has been volunteering on political campaigns for several years, and Ali Lawson, a 22-year-old senior business analytics major with a blue-collar background. These young people break down what motivates them to participate in politics and what issues they think will drive more young people to the polls to vote.
We also have some fun playing a game with Blount County elementary students Ella Russell, Kija Burr, Sunny Burr and their mother Stephanie. The game is called “Where’s the Moon?” and it’s a hoot!
